Interview with Delancey Stewart, Author of The Wedding Winger

26 Sep 2023

What’s the story behind the story? What inspired you to write The Wedding Winger?

It evolved from another series I have, Singletree, which was just all the best of small-town quirky hilarity. My most recent series was slightly more serious (Kasper Ridge) and I’ve been longing for the ability to be ridiculous… The prequel was a crossover from Singletree, and this book just kind of happened.

What’s your favorite genre to read? Is it the same as your favorite genre to write?

I love historical fiction (Kate Morton) and twisty thrillers (Ruth Ware, Lucy Foley). So no… not at all!

What books are on your TBR pile right now?

A lot of Leigh Bardugo and Assistant to the Villain (must see what the hype is about).

What scene in your book was your favorite to write?

I loved writing the scenes with Sly (the hero) and Katie (the heroine’s 5-year old). She’s the only one who isn’t charmed by Sly, and she calls him out – and brings him down to her maturity level in the process.

Do you have any quirky writing habits? (lucky mugs, cats on laps, etc.)

My office is full of wombats. This was true even before I conceptualized the Wilcox Wombats hockey team. I have a thing for wombats. And yes, I know their poop is cube-shaped. And now you know it too. You are welcome.

Do you have a motto, quote, or philosophy you live by?

I’m full of FOMO, but pretend to be a MOFO. No. Not really. <–this is one of those things that will probably seem like a mistake later, but I’m leaving it.

If you could choose one thing for readers to remember after reading your book, what would it be?

That I have a huge, hilarious backlist! 🙂
